Marathon County Uniform Addressing

How does my address relate to the 911 System?

Marathon County’s Conservation, Planning, and Zoning (CPZ) Department assigns addresses for all the towns (unincorporated municipalities) and uses this information to create maps, one of which will show the exact location of your home when you call 911. CPZ is also responsible for the information that goes into the 911 Computer-Aided Dispatch System for Marathon County’s Communications Center. When you call 911 from a landline phone (NOT from a cell phone), your name, address, phone number, directions to your home, and all emergency responders responsible for your location automatically appear on the communication officer’s screen.
